Chapter 5 – Specialized Knowledge

 

Hill States “Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute DESIRE into its monetary equivalent, you will require SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE of the service, merchandise, or profession which you intend to offer in return for fortune. Perhaps you may need much more specialized knowledge than you have the ability or the inclination to acquire, and if this should be true, you may bridge your weakness through the aid of your “Master Mind” group”

Let’s face it folks … the reason we’ve embarked on this Network Marketing Journey is to make money.

Each of us has a different goal or a different amount of money we wish to make but make money we all wish indeed!

Hill states in the quote above “Perhaps you may need much more specialized knowledge than you have the ability or the inclination to acquire, and if this should be true, you may bridge your weakness through the aid of your “Master Mind” group”

During my time here at Mentoring for Free (six years less a one year hiatus) I can’t say that I’ve learned everything I need to know but I sure have learned a lot … I’ve also passed what I’ve learned to others. Bottom line is I’ve done what Hill has suggested above.

What this has done for me is made me (as Michael says) ten foot tall and bullet proof.

I am neither interested nor can I be enticed to look at anything other than what I am currently doing.

For example … on a social media platform that I promote my eBook on … I’ve had a fella (we’ll call him John Doe) try to entice me over the course of a couple years to join him in his deal … and without even knowing what his deal is … I AM NOT INTERESTED.

John’s latest attempt to get me into his deal included a lot of (his) facts about the industry and why I am doomed to fail … this was my response:

John, much of what you say is accurate ... but not all of it!
That is Your reality ... it is not mine.
I guess we'll agree to disagree.
Have a Great Day my Friend.
Tony

John’s responded asking 'What part do you dissagree with?' and then he went on to give me a bunch more facts (his facts) about the industry.

My final response:

John,
I'm not here to get into a 'I know more than you do' conversation.
I'm not a prospect for you ... I know who I am and where I'm going!
Let's just agree to disagree and call it a day.
Cheers, Tony

This will be my final response to John and the reason being that I’ve acquired enough ‘Specialized Knowledge’ through this ‘Master Mind’ that no matter how hard others may try, I cannot be moved to embrace an alternate reality.

Mike Murdock said “the only reason people fail is because of broken focus”

The ‘Shiny Objects’ out there WILL NOT break my focus!

With Appreciation, Tony Harnett
